There are other ideas for White in the position, but they does not seem harmful. B. Macieja introduced an interesting exchange sacrifice that he suggested in our game post-mortem in Greece 2005 (see bellow): [17.Nd5 Bxd5 (17...Be7 18.Nxe7+ Rxe7І is slightly better for White due to the pawn majority on the king's flank.) 18.Rxd5 Bd619.Rxd6!? this is Macieja's idea. (19.h3?! f5 will lose a pawn for White.) 19...cxd6 20.Rxd6 Kb7 (20...Kc7 21.Bf4 g5 22.Bg3 will force the king to b7 in any case.) 21.Rd7+ Kc6 22.Rxg7 Rhg8 and Black kept the ballance in the game easily both in this game and the game Jenni, F-Brinck Klausen, B., Fuegen, 2006. 23.Rxg8 Rxg8 24.Kf2 Rh8 25.h3 b5 26.a3 a5 27.c4 Rb8 28.Bd2 b4 29.a4 Rd8 30.Ke2 g5 31.b3 Kd6 32.e5+ Kxe5 Ѕ–Ѕ Macieja,B (2585)-Naiditsch,A (2657)/Kusadasi 2006/CBM 111 ext] 17...Be7 18.Nd5 Bd8 19.Bg3 [19.g4? is premature and led to quick loss for White after: 19...f5!
